End of an era – Busch Stadium in St. Louis

Today we saw one of the last Cardinal games at Busch Stadium in St. Louis. Cathy’s sister got tickets, and the third Snyder sibling, Tom, joined us.

In the bottom of the 9th inning, trailing Atlanta by 3-1, the Cardinals’ David Eckstein hit a grand slam! What a great game for our last one at the old Busch Stadium.

Next April a new Busch Stadium will replace the standing one – which was constructed the same year I was born. So if I ever go to another major league baseball game it will only be the second major league baseball stadium I’ve been in.

  1. Sounds like a great time!! A little piece of history.

    In respect to the Cardinals and history, I thought I should point out that it is Busch (not Bush) Stadium. I assumed named after the famed beer manufacturer.
